The Stoughton Patch gave Bart a shout out in July!

Exciting to see Massachusetts taking notice!

The Stoughton Community Events Committee did it again – another amazing Parade! The day began with a soaking rain on Wednesday, but the skies held out and the parade started at 2:30 p.m. on the 4th of July. Leading the parade was Stoughton Police Chief Paul Shastany, followed by many of the department’s vehicles. The final vehicle was a fire department vehicle driven by Acting Deputy Chief Greg Goldberg. In between, there was the usual groundswell of politicians walking the parade, including… Governor’s Council candidate Bart Timilty…

Get to know Bart, in his own words.

I am a 32 year old resident of West Roxbury. I was born in Boston and grew up in Canton. I attended Boston College High School, graduating in 1997. I received a BA and MA in Classical Studies from Boston University in 2002. I spent six years in Urbana, Illinois where I pursued a PhD in Classical Philology, which I have yet to complete.

My first job upon graduation from BU was as a Latin teacher at Boston College High School. I taught for a year before I moved on to enter the PhD program. While in Illinois, I was a graduate student teaching and grading assistant. Following my return to Massachusetts, I started working for Volunteers of America.

I started at as the GED teacher at the Norfolk County Community Corrections Center in Quincy. During the 18 months I worked there, 12 individuals successfully completed testing and received their GED certificates. When Volunteers of America received a Federal grant to create a reentry program in partnership with the Norfolk County Sheriff’s Department, I moved to the Norfolk County Reentry Mentor Program, where we work to reintegrate repeat offenders into the community.

This is my first run for elective office. I have participated in a number of campaigns prior to this for friends and family members. I feel a passion for public service that has been a hallmark of the Timiltys for four generations.
